Went out last nite on the MTI to get my fix before a business trip. Lake was like glass we put in at the Coast Guard station in Burlington and ran for about 40 minutes cruising at 4000- 4100 at around 100-105 mph. Made three speed passes to make sure all held together and seemed to be very solid mechanically.

All the minor bugs look like are they are ironed out. We will most likely put some more hours on the rig in the next few weeks Thank God for that cockpit in those nice warm days!

Then it's off to the Key West Poker Run.
